Early this morning there were rumours of a so-called ‘Kodak Sneak Peek Webinar‘ from a number of VARs we know in EMEA and it didn’t take much poking around to find more detail.We are definitely going to see some form of partnership announcement between Kodak and Haivision (owners of CoolSign) – it looks to us like Haivision’s CoolSign Digital Signage System is going to be directly integrated into Kodak’s new JV700 (7inch) and JV1000 (10 inch) digital signs which retail for between USD 300 – 400 and USD 400 – 500 respectively.
The Kodak digital signs will be managed by CoolSign – the idea being we’d expect to power on the sign, connect to the internet via WiFi and manage the media. No doubt CoolSign will provide real-time health status and playback reporting as well.
With #iseurope starting on Tuesday we figure this will be announced Monday and no doubt shown on their (Haivision) stand in Amsterdam. Haivision are on stand 10L136.
